About the Session | Their engagement session took place at Windy Point, Mt. Lemmon, AZ. The weather was gorgeous, a nice escape from the heat. We laughed at jokes and talked about the things they liked most about each other. Efren surprised Yuri and dressed up in his own style and she looked gorgeous in her gown complete with hair and makeup. Every photographers dream! He twirled her around like a princess on top of a mountain, held her tight and kissed her lips. I watched them sit there in peace looking out over the horizon watching the sun set over Tucson. After their session they continued their night with a much needed and well deserved dinner date out in town.
About the Couple | Its amazing how we never know when we meet someone what the story is going to be. I met the groom over a decade ago (he was one of my brothers friends). I had no idea at that time that he would join the Marines, open his own veteran owned business and find a fresh start at love and life. When I heard that he found love with Yuri I was so happy for him. It’s like one of those movies where you really want the good guy to win! Yuri is a win! She is a beauty. She is sweet, loving, funny and strikingly beautiful. The first time I met her she had no makeup on and I was wowed! Her taste is simple yet classy. The words that come from her mouth are just as beautiful as she is. Yuri loves that Efren is a hard worker, he's loyal, strong and inspiring. I can tell that she works hard at the business they run together. I'm pretty sure it’s because of her love for him and the vision they have together.
To say that I am excited to shoot their wedding this December is a understatement. I'm so excited to see two people find love and happiness like this. It's going to be a special day.
If you are a friend or family member of Yuri and Efren please leave a comment below showing your excitement and congratulations … or if you just want to show some love that would be great too!
